Hagen Symposium 2018


The 37th Hagen Symposium on Powder Metallurgy, organised by the Fachverband Pulvermetallurgie (FPM), will take place in Hagen, Germany, November 29-30, 2018. The German-language event will include presentations on a wide range of PM technologies, as well as discussions on how a digitised industry 4.0 will impact the Powder Metallurgy sector.

It has been announced that the recipient of this year’s Skaupy Award, to be presented during the symposium, is Dr Ing Thomas Weissgärber, Fraunhofer IFAM, Dresden. In his opening Skaupy lecture, Dr Weißgärber will discuss the production of Powder Metallurgy composites with functional properties.

In addition to the symposium presentations, a new Practical Day will take place on November 29, consisting of three dedicated workshops on press technology, sintering, and quality assurance. An exhibition will also bring together those supplying the industry, and a programme of social events will allow delegates numerous networking opportunities.

Powder Metallurgy:The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
